Workforce topic of EWC Roundtable
TORRINGTON – Community success and the workforce will be the topic of the next in a series of roundtable discussions hosted by Eastern Wyoming College President Lesley Travers here.
Travers invites business, industry and community members, as well as other interested parties, to the next Community Roundtable, set for noon on Thursday, Jan. 8, in the conference room of the CTEC Building on the EWC campus in Torrington.
“Elements for communities to thrive or decline in the 21st Century will depend on how well we cultivate and retain a robust workforce,” Travers said in a press release. “For this to occur, education at the community college level needs to be closely aligned with workforce and economic development efforts.
“In this round table, I would like to encourage anyone in business and industry to join me to discuss their current and/or future needs,” she said. “How can EWC provide support and assistance to our business partners?”
Attendees are invited to bring their own, brown-bag lunch, if desired. For more information, call (307) 532-8303.
